Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

This morning, Governor Chris Christie (wearing his finest personalized fleece) finds himself stuck between a Hurricane and a Democratic administration.

Jimmy Fallon Made Jokes Last Night, And Only Questlove Was Laughing

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

As Sandy hit New York City yesterday afternoon, and people were told to stay home, both Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman went on and taped their shows anyway, without an audience. As Letterman delivered a monologue directly from cards at his desk (and used cue cards for the Top Ten List, since their on-screen graphics […]
